Visit the Nordic Fashion illustration exhibition

The Nordic Fashion Illustration exhibition is a collaboration between the Finnish Institute Finnagora, the Estonian Institute, the Danish Embassy, the Norwegian Embassy and the cultural centre Eröművház. The event is also supported by the Hungarian Association of Architects (Magyar Építőművészek Szövetsége). The opening of the exhibition will be held the 26th of September at 7 pm.

During the Fashion Illustration exhibition you can discover the ever popular genre of fashion illustration through the works of Danish, Estonian, Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian artists. The exhibition presents typical fashion illustration techniques and the latest trends from five different countries and 21 artists. The programme accompanying the exhibition highlights the possible points of contact between fashion and other artforms. For instance, one can enjoy a Finnish movie about the Marimekko founder Armi Ratia called "Armi elää!" (2015) the 5th of October.

The exhibition is part of the official programme of Budapest Design Week.
